Plan of Action CRES 2018
Between June 11th and 15th, 2018, the UNESCO International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (IESALC), the National University of Córdoba (UNC), the National Interuniversity Council (CIN) and the Secretariat for University Policies (SPU) of the Ministry of Education of Argentina convened the III Regional Conference on Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (CRES 2018). The Regional Conferences are both instruments and spaces available to higher education actors to discuss, reflect, exchange and analyze the trends that delineate the development of higher education in the region.
In 2018, a happy coincidence with the preliminary manifesto of 1918, the Conference records two results. The first one is identified with the “Declaration of Córdoba” that constitutes the political approach of higher education in the region. The second product is the present “ CRES Action Plan 2018-2028” that is expected to orient the work between higher education institutions, governments of the region and international organizations that will be developed in the period with the purpose of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) particularly the one corresponding to objective 4, “quality education”, for all.
The Post-Conference phase (Post CRES 2018) started two weeks after the event, and consisted of an analysis of the results of CRES 2018, captured in the Declaration, Proposals and Systematizations of the Symposium. These documents represent the primary materials for the definition of the Action Plan 2018-2028, which is intended to be a set of tasks and activities to implement the recommendations and conclusions of the Conference.
The Action Plan contemplates the 2018-2028 decade within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
